This is my first post, hello and thanks for reading.
I've been having a really difficult time having any joy this past month. It started when my girl friend and I broke up and I realized that I don't have any close friends left in this city. Freelance work is currently very slow. I always used to want extra time to work on writing and creative ideas, and now that I have so much time on my hands, I spend most of these hours and hours of free time feeling lonely and wishing I were with others.
I'm 28. I used to be able to have fun by myself. Now I only have brief moments of fun. I cry almost every day. I'm not pining to get back with my ex because of who she is as a person, I just wish I had her back so I wouldn't feel so lonely. I sleep too much (2 naps a day!), I have no energy, feel foggy. I spend most of the time in the home. I try and go for walks which sometimes help, but not enough.
The past 5 years I've gone from relationship to relationship and now I must have forgotten how to be alone. I don't want to go back on OkCupid and find someone else to relieve these feelings of loneliness. I want to get through this myself and come out a better person! I would love some guidance on how to have fun by yourself. How to really enjoy alone time.
I'm here if you want to talk about what you're going through, too. Everyone is all in this together.
